Came with some starter filament.  The XYZ da vinci 1.0 was advertised as plug and play. It truly was.  Like any 2d printer I download the software and was printing in less than 20 min. I pressed the sample print and it auto leveled the  heated print bed just in case was off during shipping.

Printing sample model!!

there was still filament in the extruder from the factory before is started with actual sample filament that came with the printer. The print alittle rough in the beginning but finished finish nice and smooth.  Result below.
